Eine gute Abbildung Jan. Die Details sind sehr gut sichtbar. Sehr gute Komposition. Sehr gut gemachtes Bild mit sehr gute schärfe.
Ich wünsche auch alles besten im Neues Jahr.
in a couple of months I will be heading for Karnataka again, so your image made me stop...
I was looking at this photo, thinking how film is in my eyes still better than digital - somehow more real, more close to our eyes. I love this image: the composition, the guys posing for you, the light... then I looked at the WS image - surely more striking in colours and contrast, but - I don't know, in a way I love what we can do with digital techniques nowadays, on the other hand I have the impression that our eyes are getting "addicted" to the super-vibrant colours, the boosted contrasts, the fantastic skies without over or underexposure...
mmh. if I had to choose, I think I'd still go for the film version =)
thanks for sharing this photo,

Well in terms of what I would expect of you now, this could be better! But in terms of what might be expected from 1988, this is an interesting shot.
I do like how the crew appeared to secure their place in history ... and amazing that these steam engines were still hard at work just over 20 years ago!
Thank you for sharing your past photography with us!

Happy new year.... This is a great oldie very well done and great work to improve it with PS. I really love old archival photos this could also be 80 or 90 years old if it was B&W..... thanks for the retrospective.... Roman:0)

how many good memories with the reflex in hand and the stock of photographic film ... but now digital is more easy!
still a pleasure to enjoy these photos!!!
reading your note.. i was really intriguing by your tale.. about how the youth can conduce us so far.. in every part of the world! ;)
Here, a wonderful capture from the past.. really precious in every detail..
it looks so old west.. pioneeristic... maybe from 1888.. in another part of the world.. of course.. a century ago..
i think india is changing so fast in these years.. sure.. more fast than the train conduced you there.. ;))
excellent post, Jan.. my really compliments

Love this shot. It looks like in the movie. I also liked how the people in this image appeared. They looked serious but great!
Nice scene Jan, India's great 'cos they love posing for the camera!!
As Trampas has pointed out the colours are a little flat - which of course can be boosted easily these days 'in computer', but of course it just goes to show 'how things were' with film just 20 years ago!! Be nice to see some more 'oldies'... I've got to get my hands on my archives and get scanning..
wow... als je zou hebben gezegd 1966 had ik het ook geloofd...
Wat een mooi sfeervol plaatje Jan. Het is er eentje regelrecht uit de "schoenendoos" om het zo maar te zeggen.
Echt ook de kleuren en het licht uit de "oude doos"....

wonderful old shot
good moment captured
If you had written "India 1888" instead nobody would have marvelled at it! Yes, India is like that, still in her past, (or maybe blocked in her past...) and you survived six months there! I had enought after two months...
Anyway a pretty fine photo, thanks for sharing,

What a beautiful post!
This machine train reminds me of those I saw in Bolivia.
Without a doubt India is a wonderful country with all your
magic and enchantment. Your people are wonderful to exotic beauty.
A great and wonderful record.
I think it need not WS.
Prima idee om eens terug tekijken in oude albums,ook om al die ervaringen weer eens te beleven.Zoals deze foto,mensen die poseren omdat zij trots zijn op hun locomotief.
Het is anders wel een gevaarte!

In spite of what's been said about this, Jan, I think you did a fantastic job, taking us 21 years back...(seems an awful lot of time, now that I am writing it)...composition, colors tempered down by a touch of sepia, all work really well to recreate an instant you remember so vividly!
Congrats and tfs!

Hee die Jan,
Wat een mooie opname zeg !!
Prachtig tijdsbeeld. Heel ouderwets, en mooi zoals ze poseren voor de fotograaf. En wat een mooi brok techniek, die trein. Een dikke tien ... uhhh .... 2 punten.

Hi Jan, It is good to see this historical looking steam train, i remember seeing them as a youngster. Good antique feel about this photograph. Could almost be 1888 in some aspects. TFS. Murray.
One of those memorable moments traveling around India at the time Jan . Old vintage yet still common today i 'd say ! Your scan is pretty good , i have also taken some of my old prints and negatives out of the boxes and started giving them a new life , those were the days and are worthy of being looked at , perhaps here a little flat color-wise nevertheless a great shot and note too , tfs,

wat een mooi nostalgisch plaatje is dit Jan.. Lijkt ie een beetje vaal ?
hij doet me denken aan vroeger dagen, toen reizen met zo'n trein (in het land waar ik woonde) vrij normaal was.
